No i'm not talking top 40, modern ''country'' or teen/pop oriented radio stations LOL, but more adult contemporary and other similar formats. Just wondering how much play ''Troubled Man'' and ''Sometimes There's God'' are getting since their releases as singles, it's a real shame if people besides us hardcore fans aren't hearing these songs.

I haven't heard any, but I could see Outlaw Country playing them on Serius XM radio. That's a pretty good station that plays John, Dylan, James McMurtry, Ryan Bingham, John Hiatt, John Prine and all the people I like you can't hear anywhere else.

It's getting airplay, going up the Americana Charts and I have heard TM a bunch of times on Sirius XM's Spectrum.

Thanks for chiming in guys, all i gotta say is thank god for Americana, where would veteran artists like John, Robert Plant and so many others be without it's welcoming arms.

It just proves that there is still a fan base and desire for music from these artists. Now XM gives the listener more of a choice, and doesn't force upon us what regular radio does.

I only hear John's music from back in the day (Jack And Diane, Small-town, Hurts So Good, etc.) on the classic rock station.  It's such a shame because Plain Spoken is it it's entirety, a great record. 

I'm glad to hear some of the songs from Plain Spoken are getting airplay elsewhere.

Classic rock stations are even more repetitive and boring than top 40, they're useless, haven't listened to one for more than five minutes at a time for more than two decades.

Yeah, the classic rock stations really don't consider new music from an established artist.  Unless it's someone like Paul McCartney or Robert Plant.  Even then, the new music doesn't receive a whole lot of air play.  I much prefer the European classic rock stations.  They are far more open to playing a very good mix of classics and new music.

it is true, even in my neck the woods, its the same thing over and over.  we rural folk want to hear the oldies but goodies like

country joe & the fish
elvin bishop
walter eagan
3 dog nite
poco harem
cat stevens
the band
38 special
outlaws
bad company
bread
jefferson starship
allman brothers
moody blues


the list can go on. it aint like it used to be back in my day. the thing to do was to go to someones house and listen to the vinyls. and the stereo system was always the thing. mine was the pioneer sx 350 with 12" wolfers.  and when these songs came out when the artists first wrote them, the radio station we had back then, played them. now that was playing some music  Grin

 The spectrum on Sirius  really is the best example of what classic rock stations should be. Great mix of old and new

I've heard it on sirius but nothing on conventional radio, which is a shame. I love Troubled Man and Blue charlotte. The entire album is a masterpiece in my opinion, one of his best.
